Zumiez Inc. Announces Fiscal 2014 First Quarter Results

Company Reports First Quarter Diluted Earnings per Share of $0.09

LYNNWOOD, WA -- May 22, 2014 -- Zumiez Inc. (NASDAQ: ZUMZ), a leading specialty retailer of action sports related apparel, footwear, equipment and accessories, today reported results for the first quarter ended May 3, 2014.

Total net sales for the first quarter ended May 3, 2014 (13 weeks) increased 9.7% to $162.9 million from $148.5 million in the first quarter ended May 4, 2013 (13 weeks). Comparable sales for the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2014 increased 1.8% compared to a comparable store sales decrease of (0.7%) in the first quarter of 2013. Net income in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $2.5 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.5 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the first quarter of the prior fiscal year. The results for fiscal 2014 include costs of approximately $0.6 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, for charges associated with the acquisition of Blue Tomato, and the results for fiscal 2013 include approximately $1.7 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for charges associated with the acquisition of Blue Tomato.

At May 3, 2014, the Company had cash and current marketable securities of $107.8 million compared to cash and current marketable securities of $97.6 million at May 4, 2013. The increase in cash and current marketable securities is a result of cash generated through operations, partially offset by capital expenditures and stock repurchases.

Rick Brooks, Chief Executive Officer of Zumiez Inc., stated, "Our merchandise and selling strategies helped deliver better than expected first quarter results, including positive comps, and continue to distinguish Zumiez as the leading global action sports lifestyle retailer. The investments we've made in our people and systems including expanding our digital capabilities are allowing us to better meet the needs of our North American and European customers and supporting full price selling in a challenging retail environment. We remain confident that our strategic course will continue to yield market share gains and improved profitability over the long-term."

Fiscal 2014 Second Quarter Outlook
The Company is introducing guidance for the three months ending August 2, 2014. Net sales are projected to be in the range of $167 to $171 million resulting in net income per diluted share of approximately $0.12 to $0.16, which includes an estimated $0.6 million, or approximately $0.02 per diluted share, for charges associated with the acquisition of Blue Tomato. This guidance is based on an anticipated comparable store sales result in the range of a low single digit decrease to flat for the second quarter of fiscal 2014.

The Company currently intends to open approximately 55 new stores in fiscal 2014, including up to 7 stores in Canada and 5 stores in Europe.

A conference call will be held today to discuss first quarter fiscal 2014 results and will be webcast at 5:00 p.m. ET on http://ir.zumiez.com. Participants may also dial (617) 614-4072 followed by the conference identification code of 17152136.
